To Justin Arundale

From

To
Justin Arundale
Date
18 January 1964

Not set
Tolkien replies to Justin Arundale aged ten explaining that the Silmarillion "is not yet published and will not be for some tim."

Tolkien "has a great deal of other work to do". He closes by asking him to tell his grandmother "this sad fact" and mentions that Justin had not mentioned her name, "...it might be Arundale, but then, as is said in "Brer Rabbit", then again it wouldn't".

The letter is reproduced in Mallorn 17 (1981).
